    ESPN's First mock Draft

    "The end of the NFL regular season means the selection order for the top half of the first round is finally set, save for the Raiders and 49ers, who will execute a coin flip to break a tie for picks Nos. 6 and 7.

    While the official list of declared underclassmen will not be made available by the league until a few days after the Jan. 15 deadline, several players have made their intentions known, and others, including USC RB Reggie Bush, have been the subject of fairly well-informed speculation, meaning some things are beginning to take shape.

    Much will change in the coming months, as players take part in postseason all-star games and individual workouts, as well as the scouting combine, but here is our initial first-round mock for the 2006 NFL draft:"

    1. Houston Texans (2-14): +Reggie Bush, RB, USC
    2. New Orleans Saints (3-13): Matt Leinart, QB, USC
    3. Tennessee Titans (4-12): D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
    4. New York Jets (4-12): +Vince Young, QB, Texas
    5. Green Bay Packers (4-12): A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State
    6. x-Oakland Raiders (4-12): Demeco Ryans, OLB, Alabama
    7. x-San Francisco 49ers (4-12): Jimmy Williams, DC, Virginia Tech
    8. Buffalo Bills (5-11): +Haloti Ngata, NT, Oregon
    9. Detroit Lions (5-11): Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
    10. Arizona Cardinals (5-11): +Mario Williams, DE, N.C. State
    11. St. Louis Rams (6-10): +Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
    12. Cleveland Browns (6-10): Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College
    13. Baltimore Ravens (6-10): DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis
    14. Philadelphia Eagles (6-10): +Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio State
    15. Atlanta Falcons (8-8): Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
    16. Miami Dolphins (9-7): Michael Huff, DB, Texas
    17. Minnesota Vikings (9-7): +Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota
    18. Dallas Cowboys (9-7): Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona State
    19. San Diego Chargers (9-7): Marcus McNeill, OT, Auburn
    20. Kansas City Chiefs (10-6): Orien Harris, DT, Miami-Fla.
    21. *-New England Patriots (10-6): Paul Posluszny, OLB, Penn State
    22. *-Denver Broncos (10-6): Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
    Pick acquired from Washington Redskins
    23. *-Carolina Panthers (11-5): Claude Wroten, DT, LSU
    24. *-Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11-5): +Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson
    25. *-Chicago Bears (11-5): Marcedes Lewis, TE, UCLA
    26. *-Cincinnati Bengals (11-5): Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Florida State
    27. *-New York Giants (11-5): Sinorice Moss, WR, Miami-Fla.
    28. *-Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5): +LenDale White, RB, USC
    29. *-Jacksonville Jaguars (12-4): Elvis Dumervil, DE, Louisville
    30. *-Seattle Seahawks (13-3): Thomas Howard, OLB, UTEP
    31. *-Denver Broncos (13-3): +Leonard Pope, TE, Georgia
    32. *-Indianapolis Colts (14-2): Eric Winston, OT, Miami-Fla.

    ESPN is extremely biased and this draft is horrible by them.

    Kiwanuka does not fit in a 3-4 D. He would only be a good in a 4-3.

    A TE in the first round? These guys have no idea what they are talking about. And Hali is really more of a 3-4 rush backer in my opinion. This is just stupid.
    Superintendent Chalmers: "Thank the Lord"? That sounded like a prayer. A prayer in a public school. God has no place within these walls, just like facts don't have a place within an organized religion."
